Hi, I am very new to indesign, I have been asked to set a bleed line of 5mm by a printer, do I put images that I want to fill apge to the edge up to the bleed line, or page edge? thanks, Kestrel999
Up to the bleed line.
Bear in mind that everything between the bleed line and the page edge is
likely to get chopped off.
Also, if the printer is asking for 5mm of bleed, anything that is 5mm
close to the edge of the page may also get cut off.
So make sure to keep important elements 5mm away from the edges.
5mm sounds like a lot, by the way.
Thanks Ariel, I will do that and check with the printer about the bleed distance, though they supply a sheet that says 5mm bleed, I assume I set the bleed on each page that I do, and not at the end in the pdf file,
If they say 5mm I wouldn't bother checking with them. It just shows a
rather larger margin of error.
You set the bleed for the entire document in one go under "Document
Preset." (Windows: File>Document Preset). Shortcut AltCtrlP.
